Mobile Contractor bookkeeping software

Mobile Contractor bookkeeping software

Explorer | Level 4

I'm with Old Colony Masons, Quincy, Ma. I'm looking for a program to capture receipts, save them to individual customer folders and to keep track of expenses for customer projects. Is Dropbox a good solution to store this information? Is there a mobile software program that can capture receipts using a smart phone, log the expenses per customer and maintain profit and loss statements?

Hi there @oldcolonymasons, thanks for reaching out to us here!

 

The Dropbox mobile app has a built in scanning feature, or a separate scanning app

 

These allow you to scan a physical document (receipt in this case) with your mobile device's camera, and turn it into a PDF file.

 

While there isn't currently a feature in the mobile app to automatically process the data in the files, there are many apps which offer integrations with Dropbox.

 

This means that you can use Dropbox to store your files, and connect other apps to edit them from within your account. These will then sync with any other connected device.

 

I hope this info helps, let me know if you have any questions!

Hi @oldcolonymasons, we're not able to provide any recommendations for specific apps, unfortunately.

 

There are a large number of apps that sync and can use Dropbox to store files while they make their own changes to files in their app or service. It depends on the exact type of service you require, and if any app provides that for you.
